Work from Home Tips - Entertain, Plan, and Wear Your Favorite Designer Skirt

With recent world events unraveling from under our toes, a lot of uncertainty is in the air due to the threat of COVID-19. In order to contain the contagious virus, we as individuals need to take action and isolate ourselves from others. Social distancing is the new normal as we learn to navigate these unfamiliar waters.

Due to these circumstances, a lot of businesses have either closed their doors as advised by government officials or relocated their employees to work remotely from home. This can be a major adjustment for most, but don't worry! With these five easy steps, you will be able to increase productivity and come out on top each and every workday (plus, you'll still be able to wear your favorite designer skirts)!

Create a morning routine:

Before getting into the hustle and bustle of work, it is recommended to start off every morning with a routine. This routine can be as simple or complex as you desire. Some of the most recommended morning routines include brushing your teeth, washing your face, making your bed, and eating breakfast to wake up your brain. Even though we would love to work from the comfort of our own PJ’s, it is important to act as if we were to be leaving the house. We still need to ‘dress for success’ from our home, especially during those video conferences scheduled for the day! Get ready to slip-on your favorite designer skirt... by getting ready in the morning it helps boost productivity and prepares you for the day ahead!

Designate a space:

Whether working at home temporarily or permanently, designating an ‘office’ space may mean investing in a desk (if you don’t own one already). There is no need to go over the top, but it is crucial to find a space where you can sit, focus, and efficiently work. This will keep you more organized and motivated! Remember, you will be working in this space daily so make it comfortable yet functional. To spice it up decorate the desktop with photos, books, notes or even trinkets to make it your own!

Make a to-do list:

Start off your workday by writing down all of the things that need to be completed for the day in a notebook. When thinking about these different tasks, order them from top to least priority. By ordering your list of to-dos this way, it ensures that all of the important tasks are completed, plus it's a good way to keep track of how productive you were that day. When the task is completed be sure to cross it out! Whatever items are left over, write on your to-dos for the following day and start this process over. It is very important to create a set schedule for each workday, and stick to that schedule as best as you can!

Take a breather!

It can be easy to feel overwhelmed and trapped while working at home. Set a pace and prioritize! Don’t be afraid to take a five-minute breather here and there. During this time you can walk around your backyard for a clear mind, take a social media break to catch up on the latest news or get your mind back on track with some yummy snacks. For your lunch break, use that time to both eat and work on a household chore, such as laundry, dishes, or tidying up the living room. Even play with your animals! You owe it to yourself to re-juice and regenerate, as working from home can be more difficult than working from an office space. 

Entertain!

Working doesn’t always have to be lonesome and boring. Incorporate listening to different genres of music or podcasts throughout your day. Classical or jazz music helps the brain focus! Also, make it a point to video chat clients, colleagues, or team members daily. With video chatting apps such as Zoom, Facetime, and Skype, it makes growing relationships with others more personal than just sending an email. During these calls don’t feel like you always need to talk about work-related topics. We are all human! Checking in on one another to see how they’re doing can build a stronger connection to your job as well as your personal life. Check-in on one another and hold each other accountable!
